Gamespot is the one multiformat website which has interest in SNK. IGN, Gamespy, etc... you see little to nothing there... but Gamespot has SNK fans.

This is a very comprehensive (28 page) lengthy history of SNK... well worth reading, IMO. Though it'd be nicer if they were releasing their games on GC as well as X-Box... :(

So... they have Metal Slug 3 (best in the series...) coming for X-Box (Live leaderboard) in May, SNK Vs Capcom SVCChaos coming for X-Box (fully Live enabled) in the fall, Samurai Shodown for X-Box next year sometime, and Metal Slug Advance for GBA... Sony hasn't approved US releases for MS3 or SVCChaos, even though they did allow KOF2000/2001 last year. Stupid Sony hates 2d, doesn't allow many 2d games on their system...

My question is, why not Gamecube too? I'm sure it'd get approved by Nintendo... I guess they think people who want SNK games don't have Cubes, but I don't really get that... at least they're saying they'll probably support the next Nintendo machine.

:shake:

Gee, I didn't link a 29-page article explaining what they are in a lot of detail, did I? Nope, didn't think so...

Oh man....

Is he TRYING to look stupid or something?

So... why no Cube games... they said something about not having time to develop for all three consoles but if Sony won't let them publish much in the US why not... :D

But anyone who has an X-Box should get Metal Slug 3 this spring.

I'm too lazy to click that link.

Posting the article is a lot better than just a link...

Way too long, both of them. And they have sidebars and images linked, so no, not feasible.

That second link is a 8-page article about the current state of the arcade industry. Decent read.

It took them eight pages to write about that?? I could sum it up in one word: dead.

Close, but the centers like Dave & Busters seem to be doing well.

OB1
Meh.
